The band’s current line-up of Sean Cannon, Eamonn Campbell, Paul Watchorn and Gerry O’Connor have a combined total of more than 60 years of performing with The Dubliners and they continue to play all their classic songs .

Audiences can expect hits including Whiskey In The Jar, Dirty Old Town, The Wild Rover and Black Velvet Band.
